Table tennis at CSAC

table tennis hero

Fun, challenging and fast-paced, table tennis (or ping pong) is a great sport for everybody.  

It is low impact, but will still keep you fit and flexible. As you hit the lightweight ball back and forth over the low net, it improves hand-eye coordination, balance, concentration and is a great way to introduce children to racket sports.  

At CSAC you can play on our indoor tables with two or four players, and book on a pay as you go basis.
